Hi all

Just thought I would get this set up so that we had somewhere to go at the end. Will link to it in the old thread. Can’t believe we reached the limit so soon!!!

Fab idea @jojo19834...

Hi, hope it’s ok to join I’m 7+5 with baby#2 due 11th August according to the online calculators. Feel so different with this pregnancy to the last one, been feeling sick from day 1 and can’t help but worry and feel anxious that somethings not right. Can’t wait for 11 week scan for some reassurance. Don’t know why I’m feeling this way never did 1st time round x x

NotExactly9 Sun 29-Dec-19 19:42:18

Thanks @Jojo19834 😊 anybody else around the 9 week mark?

I know I’m repeating myself haha but I’m due 2nd Aug with my first. I’m 31 and extremely nervous!!

NotExactly9 Sun 29-Dec-19 19:43:57

@JayI111 everything crossed for you. Could you not get an earlier reassurance scan? I had one at 6 weeks due to two previous MC x

Macbless Sun 29-Dec-19 20:20:48

Just marking my spot. Thanks @Jojo19834

I'm 9 weeks today or tomorrow depending on LMP/ovulation date. Due 3rd or 4th August. Feeling more excited/hopeful as things seem to be continuing. Nice to have you all to chat to xx

Hi all. Found out 2 days ago and I THINK I'm about 6 weeks. Absolutely anxious as I have pcos too. When should we be trying to get midwife referral? Asap? This is my 3rd but it's been almost 7 years since my last pregnancy. I have two boys already.

Jayl111 Sun 29-Dec-19 21:03:51

@NotExactly9 I could get a early scan private I guess. Sure it’s just me been paranoid had a few friends go through some awful pregnancies this past year and think I’m just fearing the worst. Roll on 12 weeks x x

Jojo19834 Sun 29-Dec-19 21:09:22

Good to see you @Macbless, been wondering how things were

Jojo19834 Sun 29-Dec-19 21:11:09

@Jayl111 fingers crossed all is ok, but many do say that each pregnancy is different even for themselves. I’m having the opposite thought to you, only a few symptoms so is all really ok?! I have a scan again on 5th so just need to hold out til then. I’m telling myself the tiredness has got to be a good sign

itsemily Sun 29-Dec-19 21:12:46

Hey can I join ? I thought I was due September but calculate my dates wrong of my last period! I’m due 30th August, so very end of August but feel like it’ll be nice to be part of this thread. 5 weeks today 🤰🏼 Got a scan for 8 weeks (closer to 9 weeks) on 25th January , it feels an eternity away x

Jojo19834 Sun 29-Dec-19 21:12:53

@Jj2431 I would enquire now as to what you need to do. Some need a GP referral others are self referral. Mines on 9th and I’ll be 10+1 then but booked it a while back

Jojo19834 Sun 29-Dec-19 21:14:48

Welcome @itsemily hate to say but it will take an eternity to get to, the first few weeks are soooooo slow (I have found, others feel free to disagree). It’s all the excitement and changes and milestones I think. For me it’s going to be a loooooong 9 months. Congratulations. Any symptoms yet?

Jojo19834 Sun 29-Dec-19 21:15:53

@sezzywoowoo21 all going well?

Jj2431 Sun 29-Dec-19 21:16:42

Thanks @Jojo19834 I will call my gp surgery tomorrow.

NotExactly9 Sun 29-Dec-19 21:17:34

Sorry to repeat myself - anyone around the 9week mark?

NotExactly9 Sun 29-Dec-19 21:18:51

Sorry ignore above!

@Macbless exactly the same as you haha. How are you doing?

MaisieMolly Sun 29-Dec-19 21:50:02

I’m about 8 weeks. Booked myself a private scan for tomorrow as I’ve had very few symptoms and I’m a bit worried.

Macbless Sun 29-Dec-19 21:51:02

@NotExactly9 I think @Jojo19834 is at a similar stage too. @itsemily welcome. I recognise your name from some conception boards I followed. I didn't post a lot but I found them very helpful. Congratulations on the BFP.

I'm generally doing well. Feel a lot more relaxed than I did earlier in the pregnancy. Partly the scan at 8 weeks and partly just getting more use to it and also getting closer to 12 weeks. I've only really started to get nausea this week. I have very little appetite (not normal for me at all) and I feel like I'm just having force food in to stop the nausea. It's not terrible and I'm very glad that I've not vomited but it's just that low level background queasiness with the tiredness it adds up! But I do feel so happy to have moved from conception to the pregnancy boards that I don't want to complain too much. Particularly when I know we've already lost women from the thread to MC xx

Girlinglasses Sun 29-Dec-19 22:33:35

Thanks @Jojo19834 ! I'll be 9 weeks on New Year's Day. Hoping to have my early scan day after tomorrow- feeling a bit anxious this evening as I am having pain in my lower right side, not cramps but a constant dull ache. No spotting as of yet though - I'm thinking it might be kidney/UTI as I'm just off antibiotics for an infection, I wonder did it not clear up fully.

I agree with OP too, the time is going so sloooowwwwly, I think I'm just really keen to get to second trimester in the hopes that I'll relax a bit more!

Dollywilde Sun 29-Dec-19 22:40:14

Checking back in, 7.5 weeks. Booking in appointment on Tuesday and private scan for next Saturday when I’m due to be 8.5. Hope everyone’s getting on okay. I’ve spent most of today spitting feathers at DH and crying. Hormonal as hell... not fun.

heroineinahalfshell Sun 29-Dec-19 23:14:52

Hi all. I'm 7 weeks, due around about 15th Aug. First baby. I saw my GP on 21st Dec, and rang the midwife that day for my booking in appointment. They said they'd send me a letter with the appointment details (wouldn't book it over the phone), but nothing has arrived yet. Is that normal? I know with Xmas it might have got delayed, but it's making me anxious. I might ring them tomorrow if nothing comes in the post.
Only symptoms so far are my boobs are already huge, and I've had wicked bad nausea from early morning to late afternoon every day.... which made cooking christmas dinner fun! I could take out shares in ginger ale at this point grin

sezzywoowoo21 Sun 29-Dec-19 23:29:23

@Jojo19834...all seems to be ok sleeping every second I can and feeling sick 24/7 had second scan at 6 wld and saw little heartbeat just can’t wait for 12 week one now time seems to be going sooooo slow lol xx

Frazzlerock Mon 30-Dec-19 06:31:17

Just marking my spot. I've been on the old thread as it still seems to be accepting posts but will be over when it's full, or everyone decides to move over

NamiSwan Mon 30-Dec-19 08:06:26

Place marking while I catch up on the thread - welcome newbies!

I'm 9 weeks today, nausea and tiredness has been horrendous the last few days. I'm hoping it peaks soon and then starts to improve as I can't deal with this anymore 😭 have my booking in appointment on Thursday which I'm looking forward to as at the moment the pregnancy doesn't feel real really despite the symptoms as I just feel fat, tired and ill rather than pregnant 🙈
